Pocket-Sized Power Solution Is Ideal for Outdoor Use, Business Trips and Emergencies

Dec. 13 /CSRwire/ - ICP Global Technologies announced that its Portable Solar Charger, code-named "iSun(TM)" is now being released as a renewable and portable power charger for all cell phones, mp3 players, PDAs, laptops and other small electronic devices.

This device is the first modular and scalable solar charger that can grow with consumer requirements. It is the first such device which is totally adaptable to any rechargeable-battery powered portable electronics. With a footprint no larger than a VHS cassette, and weight of less than 350 grams, iSun(TM) is available in 2 versions, the iSun(TM) and the iSunSport(TM). The iSun(TM) is targeted at the business or leisure traveler whereas the iSunSport(TM) features increased weather resistance for outdoor recreational use. Each package includes a 12Volt cigarette lighter socket, 7 plugs for most small electronics and suction cups to mount unit on windows. Various accessories will be launched at a later date to compliment the initial product platform.

ICP Global Technologies patented environmentally friendly solar technology makes it easy for anyone to participate in using the renewable and free energy from the Sun. The charger's ability to let users keep working on a low battery is especially appropriate for the newest mobile phones and handhelds, which have power-hogging features like high-performance screens that can be read in bright sunlight and sleeker profiles that reduce the space available for a battery, decreasing the amount of run time between charges.

"The result is an anytime and anywhere charging solution for business trips, an antidote to a low battery at home or on the road, and peace of mind in a package small enough to slip into your briefcase or knapsack," said Sass Peress, Chief Energizing Officer. "Using a buy-in, sell out strategy, our channel partners will have continuous sales through current and new accessory additions. The fact that iSun is modular will permit scalability anytime the user wishes to grow power output," continued Peress.

The iSun(TM) and iSunSport(TM) will be available in major retail outlets, at airports, from online retailers. For more info, go to www.isunpower.com.
